By comparing brain tissue of people who had taken statins with those who had not, US scientists have established for the first time that taking statins may help to stave off the telltale signs of Alzheimer's. The study is reported in the August 28th issue of Neurology, a journal of the American Academy of Neurology and is the work of lead author Dr Gail (Ge) Li, an assistant professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington School of Medicine, in Seattle, and colleagues.
